Silent Auction 2021
12th Annual Haiti Mission
Golf Tournament & Silent Auction
April 12, 2021
Thank you and God bless you for your generosity! We continue to be reminded how God’s plan is far better than we can dream of and that we just need to remain faithful and leave Him in control.
We received a record setting total of $134,100 from our Sponsors and Donors prior to the event. We received bids on all 65 items, including the last week additions of the Pheasant Hunt donated by Bruce Bown and the Beach House donated by Rebecca & Richard Bourgeois. As in the past, many winning bidders also added to their donation and additional donations were made without bidding on items. After all the checks were collected, the auction items and extra donations took in $31,615.
The combined total raised is a record setting amount of $165,715 which is $20,000 more than last year’s total and $30,000 more than our goal of $135,000. Because of your generosity, we have enough matching money in place for the potential construction of 44 Homes or nearly 4 Homes per month!! We continue to be amazed by your generosity!
We once again need to give special thanks to Danielle Cheramie, the Cheramie Family and friends who did an incredible job putting together and donating many of the items which were available, Many generous people each year continue to help either by donating items, bidding on items or making donations. Thank you again!
Our final total of $165,715 will be restricted towards matching funds to continue to build the next 44 homes. With half the money in place we will continue to build homes for each $3750 we collect from donors. I have already confirmed with Fr. Joe and our construction team that they would like to build 4 homes per month. We will attempt the 4 home build for the first time in June 2021.We plan on building three to four homes per month through the end of 2021 and we have faith that we will receive additional donors before year end and we will be able to continue at the same pace through the beginning of April 2022.
Since the Silent Auction began dedicating money in 2013 to be utilized towards building homes we have raised $963,700 in matching money. Our construction team of Haitians has grown to 60 men who are building homes #218-220 this month. We are now on our way to Home #264 over the next year which will put us at nearly 2.0 million utilized for home construction since 2013. Amazing! You Cannot Out Give God!
We currently have two upcoming trips planned in 2021. Covid restrictions are still an issue for us to travel, however our construction team keeps working each month on homes. If it is God’s plan we will be there in June. What a joy it will be to represent all of our HMI donors and supporters as we dedicate homes and are blessed to witness how lives and families are generationally being changed.
Please visit the HMI website at www.haitimissioninc.com and look for more exciting updates.
Thank you once again for all you are doing to make this possible. God bless you and your family.
